You run through the numbers. You run things by your boss. Now run to support WCBE 90.5 FM. On Saturday, May 4, central Ohio’s NPR station presents, “Storm The Fort,” a 5K run to benefit 90.5! The running route winds through our home: the historic #FortHayes campus in downtown Columbus. Established as a Civil War army base in 1863, the Fort has been WCBE’s home over 25 years. All proceeds from the run benefit your favorite public radio station. Get the details online at wcbe.org!
After the race you’re welcome to attend a tour of the historic campus. You'll learn what each building was constructed for and evolved into, as well as other historical information. This tour is free to all race participants.
